6:02 pm
year. >> reporter: yes, there is, joe, and really there has been a stream of folks steadily checking in since 5:00 and i am actually in one of the 25 precinct rooms. and much like how we were spraining, the prose really is quite simple. however, there are changes to stream line the process. for one, there are more caucus locations. for registered republicans, there are 28 locations in washoe county and in 2012, there were only 11. so it is definitely a lot more locations to report to. and also new this year, site leader also use smart phones to report their precinct results around 8:30. they will photograph the result and send toilet the party leaders. these changes are really meant to stream ryan and expedite the process. washoe county republican chairman tells me he think this will be the most organized caucus it has ever hosted. the turn out will be a big question, of course, and in
6:03 pm
up to caucus in nevada so that is only about 8% of the republican voters in the state turning out so as you mentioned earlier, the republican party not making predictions tonight but remaining hopeful. in fact, i actually spoke to a woman who said she wasn't really familiar with the process until this recollection and tonight will be her first time caucusing so we're expecting hopefully the republican party is expecting a bigger turn out. they say that engage nevada actually noticed a bump in registration for registered republicans before that february 13th deadline so we will see how it all turns out toned and we will have those results and they start counting those around 8:30. so follow my news and here on news 4 for your latest nevada republican caucus results. reporting live, van tieu, news 4. thank you, van. it has been a busy day around here. donald trump and ted cruz made a final push in northern nevada before the caucuses.
6:04 pm
hayden joins us in the studio. trump spent a lot of his speech this afternoon talking about his opponent. >> he sure did, shelby. trump spoke for about an hour inside the nugget casino in spark this is afternoon talking a lot about respect candidate ted cruz. he told the crud of 4,000 cruz is the biggest liar he has ever seen. he also fired him up with his typical talking points which included his plans to build a wall along the mexican border, plus his plans of taking isis military. he also talked about the republican candidate marco rubio. however, he said rubio is a nice young man and that he wouldn't talk about him like he talks about cruz, at least for now. >> he has not hit me. i'm treating him nicely. when he hits me o, is he going to be hit. actually i can't wait. i said that about cruz. we were both being very nice and he was being very noise and all of a sudden he said
6:05 pm
said thank goodness, it is file. >> and on the other hand, ted cruz focused much of his speech in carson city on the nevada caucus. he urged the nevadans at the event inside a brewery art centntr to get out and vote tonight and to encourage others to caucus with them. the nevada attorney general opened the rally for cruz again this afternoon. cruz also campaigned this morning before heading to carson city. during his event this afternoon, he said nevadans have a chance to make a difference tonight. >> the country is watching you tonight. in 2012, about 32,000 nevadans showed up. here in carson city, fewer than 2,000 showed up. if every person here got nine other people to come out and vote tonight, the men and women in this room would more than double the turn out of four queers ago. >> both cruz and trump headed down to las vegas after their event in northern nevada today for watch parties in las vegas

thank you. joining us to breast cancer down what is happening is the professor prom truckee meadows community college. good the see you fen. thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. >> is in anything stopping donald trump in nevada tonight? what do you predict? >> i don't think in nevada. h he has such a lead that i suspect even -- there will be some confusion because they had to be registered by the 13th but i think he will prevail quite comfortably. >> you said the more interesting battle could shape up to be for second place. >> clearly. this is a continue us of south carolina. both cruz and rubio have campaigned heavily. at this point in time i'd give the edge to rubio, but we have such a conservative population turning out for the republican caucus, that could help cruz. [ and cruz has obvious -- obviously he hit a stumbling block this week do you see problems with maybe the way his campaign is moving along? >> it is. it isn't catching fire the way it needs to. clearly bad press involving his communication and bad practices. these are not good things to
6:07 pm
>> and then what about turn out, how important is it for nevada, for the republicans to have a good turn out to secure this spot in the campaign? >> it is very important to do better than 2012 in terms of how it was run. hopefully that's more successful. they're not going to get a good turn out and that does hurt us, both us and the democrats. 2020. j and in super tuesday is in a week do you see any surprises super tuesday? >> i think we'll rook back realizing that nevada was pivotal in both the republican and democratic races. this could be a very good week coming from both hillary and for trump. >> all right. and the caucus process, it seems like when you ask voters frustration. it was kind of chaotic in places on saturday with the democrats and it doesn't seem like voters love the process, but is this caucus system here to stay, do you think? >> i think they'll reconsider they need to.
6:08 pm
will be a cleaner process, more participation. we're not doing well in the caucuses. >> we just watched the interview with donald trump during his appearance earlier today. as political science expert, you watch what is happening with the race do you shake your head? do you marvel at the success trump seems to be having? >> well, it is clearly a great year to with an outsider and both he and sanders are clearly benefiting from the mood of voters. i hope both major parties are listening loudly because they clearly are not happy with what they have been dealing with so far. >> organizally, do you expect thinses to go smoothly with the caucus procedure tonight? up. again, they really needed it because we were embarrassed to the entire nation in 2012. >> the process does work differently when it comes to the democrats. and the republicans more like you just show up and vote. >> exactly. it is a caucus in name only because you will come in to ballot. they are encouraging the

6:30 pm
carolina primary which was last saturday and sometime before super tuesday which is a week from today. they chose tonight, of course, to hold their caucuses. so those are the different strategies that go into scheduling the caucuses. it doesn't sound like there was much in the we of communication between the two sides to cord nay, but it is politics afterall. as for tonight's causes, there are 28 locations in washoe county, up from 11 the last time around in 2008 so the republicans are hoping for a around. thanks to doug for sending in that question. remember, if you do have questions you would like to ask, send me an e-mail at judgement hart and just put ask joe in the subject line andly do my best to track down whatever answers you are looking for. and time now for our news 4 web poll question. who do you think will win nevada's republican caucus tonight? here are the results so far. 66% of you say donald trump. still plenty of time to vote as you look at the other numbers for the other candidates and

no idea at all. and audits aren't as arduous as you may think. >> what you see in the movies probably, you know, the irs agent knocking on your door, baugh lot of the time you just get a letter from the irs. and here is something to keep in mind, just because the irs sends you an audit letter doesn't necessarily mean you'll owe more money. >> a also of times the irs just has a question. >> reporter: and whether or not you get audited also comes down to your actions, not just your income, like taking excessive deductions, failing to report all taxable income, or taking an early pay-out from a retirement account. all red flags. the best way a taxpayer can prepare in case of an audit it is good recordkeeping. >> the time to do tax planning and think about your tax return is not in march, but in the 12 months preceding march. >> reporter: in washington. in terror-related news,

6:44 pm
32 is the freezing point so if you're at minus 11, that is like 43 degrees below freezing. that's not comfortable. 34 at truckee that is not bad. fallin at 45 and carson city is coming in at 416789 it is a nice night. it sure was nice in monterey if you can afford it. 75 degrees. what a gorgeous day that must have been at the coast. we were in the 50s. is about got to 70 so all of these numbers are just going to keep on going up. right now we're still in the 40s except for southeast of us a little bit. and around 38. city. so this system is gone. it doesn't look like much in the satellite and it is not. it just provided cloud cover and that is going to disappear. the high pressure will be strong and get us up into numbers that are almost 20 degrees above average for this time of year so passing clouds for wednesday and thursday. in the a big deal no rainfall expected from that, but gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. we love your pictures.
6:45 pm
and if you're in the northeastern section of the state, overnight low also be cold. in you eka, down to 10. and then we rebound into the mid 40s and mid 50s, which isn't too bad. austin, eureka will be in the upper 40s to 50s as well. winnemucca goes to 57. not bad. upper 50s to low 60s. overnight lows will still be below freezing in many spots, and then we get you in the 27 to 32 range here. you know what? remember, the average high is 53. so if we get you to these numbers, that is easily 10 degrees above average and i think everyone will be there for mostly sunny skies. overnight lows in the mid to upper 20s except truckee and then upper 50s at times in spots and 60 is within range on friday. let's go to susanville. most locations between 60 and 63. mostly sunny. winds southeast at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

6:47 pm
that in a couple of weeks. it was a good time out there. >> good weather for that. we're talking about wolfpack basketball and i was listen on the radio, unlv. that was a heart broker of the loss. >> i'm watching it and jumping up and down and you think the game is over. >> and they tight it up. >> right at the buzzer. >> there were weird things. did the clock start on time. did he travel? it should have been a technical so many things went wrong, but in the end nevada loses a tough loss, but they'll have to bounce back and they'll have a chance to do that on wednesday. one of the best qualities of this team has been its ability to bounce back. even after tough losses. that feels like a gut punch. the team has dropped two straight only once this entire year and it has not happened yet. the guys talked about how they have been able to do that. >> probably because it is an uncomfortable few days until we play our next game, and, you
6:48 pm
little bit in practice and in our intensity and film session. >> we don't want to deal with the coach. but i would say we don't like losing and we feel like we should win every game. i say that multiple times. it is one of the things about us this year, we hate losing, so we just really focus on that. >> we want revenge on the next team from our previous loss, and that's what really helps us gate win. >> nevada looking to return to the win column wednesday night at waller against utah state, a team they did beat in logan in a shoot-out a couple of weeks ago. it is also fan appreciation day. ticket tickets can be purchased online. use the promo code and $5 is it. you have to do it online, though. the tip-off is set for 7:00. the coach also announced that the former stand out john carlson has joined the program as a walk-on. he said the players have already been impressed with his abilities. he said he won't be able to
6:49 pm
